makena naa-dei · Ages 13+ · world premiere · one person show · United States of America
Inspired by the true story of a slave who fled. Upon capture, she kills her child rather than return it to slavery. She recounts the past, as water goddess Yemoja and the ancestors seek to remind her, and all those with African roots of their royal heritage, courage, and our shared bright futures
